8:14 am
the problem. >> reporter: pebble beach is where the rich and famous come to play golf. it sits directly on the california shoreline, just steps from some of the most environmentally sensitive waters on the west coast. but look below the surface here and this is what you'll likely find, thousands of golf balls. >> seeing the sea floor completely covered in trash, it was like a straight shot to the heart. >> reporter: the carmel coast has been part of alex weber's life since she could walk. her dad took her diving for the first time when she was 15 and she was stunned by what she found. >> it was incredible. we would go out and dive and pick up 2500 golf balls. two weeks later we'd pick up another 2500 to 3,000 golf balls. >> reporter: as alex picked them up, she wondered just how many golf balls are there >> the more we researched, the more we discovered that it's a completely foreign topic. no one has ever looked at golf balls under the ocean. >> she sent me an e-mail saying she had read some of the papers, scieific artics atame
8:15 am
out of my ph.d. work. >> reporter: alex teamed up wit just how big the problem is. >> it's so rubbery. i said, you know, why don't we put together a report and try and publish a scientific article of your own that actually states the scope of the problem, the intensity of the problem and what we can do about the problem. >> reporter: with matthew overseeing her research, alex went to work collecting golf balls in the ocean and on the beach near three coastal golf courses, carefully sorting them by their condition. >> we start with something like this with the polyurethane shell and the gloss. as it breaks down, it loses the gloss, it loses the paint, it loses the shell. >> reporter: over time the balls roll around on the ocean floor and break into pieces. >> this rubber band that's in this golf ball, there's 275 yards of it and that will continue to unravel and get tangled up in the kelp and its buoyant so it sits on the surface of the ocean. >> reporter: alex found that the balls had been deteriorating for decades. pebble beach has been a golf
8:16 am
course since 1919. >> and so it's not the problem of golf balls are constantly being hit into the ocean and refilling these spots, it's that there's 100 years of golf ball pollution out there and that that pollution is continuing to wear down. >> reporter: that waste could potentially impact wildlife, including fish, the california sea otter and endangered species, sea lions and coastal birds who may eat tiny pieces of plastic. >> there's not a lot of study done on the chemical compounds that are in golf balls and how that might affect organisms that are consuming this material. because again, until alex had really discovered this problem and looked into it in really great detail, no one had really studied this problem and its potential effects at all. seriously, how do you think this happens? >> reporter: after two years of work, alex and matthew just published their scientific paper that concluded most of the balls came from pebble beach. they found more than 35,000 in the water right off the golf course. when alex added those balls to ones collected in the same area
8:17 am

8:18 am
over their shoulder the whole time. >> reporter: the sanctuary lifon coast. >> it's been very interesting to get to the bottom of the golf ball issue and realize that there could be other areas on the coast that we need to take a look at. >> reporter: alex will be heading to uc santa barbara soon to study marine ecology. she's excited to see her hard work turn into action. >> golf courses should be responsible for picking up these balls. >> reporter: the california coastal commission tells us plastic golf balls into the ocean is not acceptable. they're looking at all options to clean them up and to keep it from happening. for the i-team, dan noyes, abc 7 news. good morning to you. post frontal showers and also looking at scattered downpours. live doppler 7 right now taking you into the east bay around 80. we're looking at the wet weather. further south a bit of a break from san leandro, but it's pretty soggy with light rain
